The adolescent afghan

There is a point in the life of every large project when it gets to what I think of as an awkward phase.

All of the pieces are made, many of them are joined into large pieces that are a bit gangly and difficult to manage, and while it is possible to see hints of the beauty of the finished object, it is not quite there.

With pieces still to be joined, ends to be woven in and trimmed, pet hair to be removed, and spray bottle blocking to be done, it shows much promise, but is still ragged and unkempt, and this is the point that I have reached with the Tetrisghan.

After ruminating on the possible borders, I finally settled on (as one dear reader correctly surmised in her comment) making more Bauhaus blocks, and I decided to make them with black Red Heart Super Saver.

Here is how all of the pieces looked in the shade on my back deck where I could get this sort of side view:

and here is how it looked with the daylight available in my living room:

This is also the point in a project when I get up in the morning thinking that today is the day I will get it done, and one of these days, I’ll be right.

  1. Wow! Must admit I haven’t been able to wrap my mind around this project…until today! Still can’t see the letters but who cares, this is absolutely beautiful. Love it, love it.
